Oakwood House is a stunning individual architect designed contemporary residence offering a ‘Grand Design’ feel with its unique ‘Huf Haus’ styling and finished to an extremely high specification inside and out to include Siemens appliances, porcelanosa tiles throughout, Vitra sanitary wear and Grohe taps.
The property was completed in August 2015 with a highly efficient timber frame design under a natural clay roof with block rendered white walls and grey Marley Eternity composite ship lap to the upper level and comes with the remainder of a 10 year architects certificate. There are external cctv cameras with recordable hard drive and a fitted perimeter house alarm. An integrated Sonos system with sunken ceiling and wall mounted speakers can be enjoyed in the kitchen, dining room and sitting room.
The owners have used modern eco friendly technology to include a ground source heat pump that serves the hot water and underfloor heating throughout the entire residence and annexe and a (MVHR) mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system. There is also 4kw of solar panels that generate an income whilst reducing the electric bills. Both benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme that pays a quarterly amount until 2022 for the ground source heat pump and ongoing for the solar panels.
The property is set behind automated gated access that opens to a long driveway that leads to the front door where there is ample driveway parking. There is a lower driveway that also has ample parking that leads to an area that has planning permission for a triple garage with useful loft room that would make an ideal home office or gym. The footings have been put in place with drainage, water and electric ready to connect to the main house. The property sits amongst grounds of approximately 4 acres that is made up of a near level two acre enclosed paddock to the front of the house and a two acre private woodland to the side. The property is located on a former Lime Quarry and has a unique original Lime Kiln that makes an amazing feature.
The design offers a slightly elevated position to encapsulate the outstanding uninterrupted rolling country side views towards Totnes and Dartmoor beyond. There is a wealth of accommodation offering a great deal of flexibility that comprises spacious reception hallway, downstairs cloakroom/WC, stunning sitting room with feature double height vaulted ceiling, contemporary wood burner and aluminium bifold doors, separate dining room with aluminium bifold doors and fitted bar area, high end kitchen/breakfast room with fitted Siemens appliances and aluminium bifold doors, separate fitted utility room, two double ground floor bedrooms with a luxury ‘Jack and Jill wet room/WC and snug.

There are four further double bedrooms and a luxury 4 piece family bathroom/WC. The spacious master suite has its own fitted walk in dressing room and luxury 4 piece bathroom/WC.
